The Charleston Visitor Center was really nice! It provided lots of info about the area and the workers were very helpful. The gift shop had reasonably priced items and a pretty good selection of items to chose from.

This is the place to go for all your questions. Good place to park and catch the bus. Some of the bus drivers will give you info and suggestions. The staff at the Visitor's Center are very friendly.
